An account of the history of this activity in the area, including details of cock-pits which can still be seen in rural and urban contexts as usually circular, raised platforms, either open or covered. They may also remain as earthworks in the countryside. In urban contexts the ring was sometimes sunken rather than raised, due to headroom considerations. There is much historical evidence for ownership and care of the birds and pits, as well as fluctuations in the involvement of various social strata. Artefactual evidence is apparent in the form of valuable cups, trophies and other objects -- which were often fashioned in silver and gold, and brass admission tokens. There is an `Appendix' (22--5) providing mostly historical, but some archaeological, evidence for fight locations in Northumberland and Durham.

A consideration of the practical aspects of the Wall's construction and design, based on remaining archaeological evidence for the broad wall from Newcastle to the Irthing, and constrained by the practicalities of building techniques. The curtain wall, milecastle gateways, turrets, and roofs are considered, along with the possible coordination of manpower needed to operate a system of defence. The omission of forts from the original building scheme, coupled with the narrowing of the wall to as little as six feet in places may indicate a change in purpose and function. A case is made for the turrets being intended as primary accommodation, and for there having been towers with observation windows to both north and south. Also postulates the theory that the curtain wall builders arrived prior to the milecastles and turrets reaching full height. There are two appendices, `Appendix 1: the height of the wall' (46--9) and `Appendix 2: barrack accommodation' (49).

A report based on excavation work carried out as part of a larger project to investigate signalling on the Wall. The remains were not well preserved; however, the remaining structural dimensions and orientation were found to be consistent with those of a signal tower. Its apparently inferior siting when compared with Barcombe A may instead be seen in the context of fully operational Stanegate and Wall-fort systems. The low altitude would not necessarily have inhibited usefulness, as signals from Barcombe B would not have been visible north of the Wall.

An account of the gatehouse made during work to restore the building. A description of each elevation is followed by details of the interior and the structural history. An `Appendix: a small excavation' (76--7) provides information on features uncovered by removal of a twentieth century entrance hall; these included the footings of the western part of the curtain wall and a possible part of the north wall of the cottage.

Excavation in 1990 aimed to investigate the structure in advance of conservation work to prevent further decay of the fabric. Provides details of the development of this gateway from its construction as part of the Tudor defence work that replaced the medieval fortification of a continuously beleaguered border town. The defence works, from outer parapet, sentry walk and `screen wall', to the portcullis housing and internal parapet, are described. Also included are details of later modifications, and reports on other finds with `Ceramic and glass' by Margaret Ellison (108--15), including the pottery, tile, glass, clay tobacco pipes, and finally metal objects.

As a result of extensive survey undertaken at Fourstones in 1969--70 several querns were discovered. The two which were illustrated are reproduced and described. Both were Roman in date, made of `pudding-stone' rock, and used at a native farmstead. It is thought that the farmstead may have supplied local garrisons with quernstones or else have had a long life span concentrating on the production of wheat.

Following an earlier article declaring mould 1938.6 to have been involved in the production of fake 100 livres assignats and mould 1938.7 in the production of 250 livres assignats, correspondence with a European expert (Eckhard Prochaska) leads to revision of these conclusions.
